My Dad, brother Jesse and I headed down to Baja in February, 2001 for two weeks in my Dad's latest and greatest toy, his big red Hummer. Along the way we played with the gray whales and their calves in San Ignacio Lagoon, saw Indian cave paintings and petroglyphs, hung out on the beach and bartered at the fish camp at our beloved Punta San Francisquito, met some interesting characters in LA Bay, rode horses and watched John Wayne movies at Meling Ranchmy childhood favoriteand did some shopping and relaxing in Rosarito.
I kept a log of the journey here. It's probably much too long, but I wanted to remember every minute of every day. It was an extraordinary trip, and a fabulous adventure. Mostly because of the people we met, and the things they shared with us. Thanks for giving us the trip of a lifetime, Baja California. We will return.
